Southern Alberta Amateur Radio Club is holding a Field Day

Hi Bob,

This may be a stretch for those to attend however would you possibly be able to circulate that the Southern Alberta Amateur Radio Club is holding a Field Day event?

Details are at https://www.saarc.ca/

Just in case someone from up there is interested in attending an off-grid Field Day event in this area.

Thanks!

FINALLY AN IN PERSON CAARC MEETING!!

The May CAARC general   meeting was an in person meeting on Wednesday May 18th  at 7.00PM  held at Glenn’s Restaurant , Red Deer  in Gasoline Alley. This was the last meeting to finalize the planning for the 50th Picnic and hamfest. It was great to meet in person instead of on ZOOM!

Red Deer Fox Hunt

Edmonton Area Fox Hunting League
We’re meeting with the Calgary Hunters in Red Deer to talk fox hunting and do some fun hunts.
It is also on the CARA website (where the rest of the info below is from).
May Day 2022 sees fox hunters from Calgary and Edmonton rendezvousing at the Tim Hortons in Red Deer, AB 4217 – 50 Avenue.  This will be an event where the Edmonton Area Fox Hunting League meet with fox hunters from the Calgary Amateur Radio Association for a joint sharing of experience and equipment knowledge.  Real fox hunting practice will be a big part of the day, both on foot and in vehicles.

Agenda:

8:00 AM Breakfast and depart Calgary/Edmonton.

10:00 AM Meet and Greet at Tim Hortons, 4217 – 50 Avenue, Red Deer.  Review of equipment for both foot and vehicle searches.  Then head across the street for on-foot practice in Rotary Park.

1:00 PM Lunch at Tims (your own treat) or bring your own.

2:00 PM  Organize and head out for vehicle based fox hunting.

5:00 PM Regather at Tim’s, or other place, for dinner before the journey home.

Vertical HF Antenna for SOTA

This is a solution I came up with when I reach a summit where there is insufficient room to deploy an EFHW antenna. This mount fits on the tip of my trekking pole that I poke upside down in the snow or prop up with rocks. I attach the coax to one BNC fitting and a Diamond vertical antenna to the other BNC fitting. There are four ground wire attachments for the ground plane wires that I just lay out in the snow or on the ground. The photo shows the antenna in use on the summit of Lipalian Mountain.
